This our third trip to Napili Kai, our love for this place grows more with each visit. Just having been three times seems to make us the new kids on the block. This trip we meet quite a few couples and family's that have been going to Napili Kai for well over 20yrs. After one stay at this family like... More

Upon booking a $390.00 per night ocean view studio, I was looking forward to a comfortable and relaxing staycation at the Napili Kai Beach "Resort". As an avid traveler and Resident of Maui, I am certainly spoiled by regular access to some of the most beautiful beaches and resorts in the world. Upon arriving at my assigned ocean view studio...

We have been going to Maui at least once a year for the last 38 years and have stayed in many hotels on the Island but few even hold a candle to the Napili Kai. Many hotels employee staff that obviously hate their jobs and it shows in the treatment of their guests. Not at Napili Kai. Everyone from the... More

Wonderful staff, grounds, services- snorkeling in the bay was fantastic- had a studio with a kitchen, so we were able to cook and have some wonderful meals at the Sea House Restaurant- not a big hotel scene like some other places- but close to everything - definitely a place where the feeling of aloha and ohana lives on!

My wife and I stayed at this amazing resort 2 years ago. When we left home to Norway we decide to go back again – to our little paradise on “the other side of the world”. We have during our two holidays on Hawaii stayed at amazing resorts on Maui, Oahu and The big Island but none of them beat... More

I had a luxurious stay at Napili Kai Beach Resort with my family in July of 2015. There was a restaurant at the hotel which was very fancy and had delicious food. There were many activities that you could do. Such as paddle boarding, snorkeling, bocce ball, shuffle board, and mini golf. There were many pools for each Puna Point.... More

We had a wonderful time at the Napili Kai resort and will definitely return. Although my husband and I don't typically care for "family resorts", but went along with our friends and stayed for a week at the Napili Kai. Our room was an ocean front room in the Puna II building and we LOVED it. It was beautifully renovated... More

The moment we arrived at Napili Kai Beach Resort, we felt we were in paradise. The beach, is by far, the BEST in Maui. We traveled to other Maui beaches on our last visit and to a few others this visit but none come close to Napili. Our room-- a one bedroom suite with two bathrooms was perfect for our... More

A beautiful location and the beach second to none. Stayed at this hotel together with three friends in May of this year. We were however disappointed at what facilities the hotel had to offer. The beach bar was staffed by some disagreeable waiters who had very little care and attention. We felt that it was almost too much trouble to... More

Truly an original gem. Not a high rise, just a genuine pleasure. The beachfront restaurant was fabulous for everything from breakfast to a full dinner. This is the kind of place that you think of when you want authentic Hawaiian atmosphere!
